The U.S. Department of Commerce said it will not yet implement the ban on TikTok in the country, which was due to come into effect on November 12. This was reported by The Wall Street Journal.
The agency notes that the law prohibiting U.S. app stores to offer TikTok downloads will not come into force “pending further legal changes.
Earlier, a U.S. court temporarily blocked the entry into force of the U.S. administration’s decision to remove the application of the social network TikTok from Google and Apple app stores. Judge Carl Nichols granted a request for a temporary injunction for the owners of TikTok, but rejected a request for a similar ban on social networking in the country from November 12.
On September 18, it became known that users living in the United States would not be able to install updates to TikTok or WeChat. The authorities will not force users to remove applications from their phones, but will oblige Arle and Google to remove Chinese applications from their platforms available in the country. In this case, Arlé and Google will be able to save applications on platforms operating in other countries.
